Some recent studies are showing that olive oil can help (a lot!) with cardiovascular problems like high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It can help with diabetes. It can reduce inflammation and the chance of strokes.

But much of the olive oil in stores, including those labeled “Extra Virgin”, are cut with other vegetable oils. Read the article below to get the full story on the amazing benefits of olive oil, how to buy REAL olive oil, and how to test what you have to see if it’s OK.

The Amazing Benefits of Olive Oil (Be Aware of Fake Olive Oil)

Ronald Grisanti D.C., D.A.B.C.O., DACBN, MS, CFMP

Olive Oil is considered a superfood source.

It is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats. The key fatty acid in olive oil is oleic acid. This fatty acid has been found to be responsible for lowering inflammation.

Research also suggests that oleic acid can reduce levels of important inflammatory markers like high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and Interleukin-6.

Reduced Stroke Events Associated with Consumption of Olive Oil

Thirty-two cohort studies (42 reports), including 841,211 subjects found that olive oil was the only source of monounsaturated fat associated with a reduced risk of stroke.

Cardiovascular Benefits

Olive oil intake has also been shown to lower blood pressure. In one study, olive oil reduced the need for blood pressure medication by 48%.

The study found that a single dose of high polyphenol olive oil increased endothelial function (cells lining the interior of blood vessels), decreased “bad” LDL cholesterol from oxidation, and moderated blood glucose.

Diabetes Benefits

Several studies have found that olive oil, combined with a Mediterranean diet, can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and improve insulin sensitivity.

Olive Oil and Helicobacter pylori

A study in humans suggested that 30 grams of extra virgin olive oil, taken daily, can eliminate Helicobacter pylori infection in 10–40% of people in as little as two weeks.

The results of lab studies showed olive oil’s phenolic compounds were effective against eight strains of H. pylori, including three that are resistant to some antibiotics.

Choose Your Olive Oil Wisely

Turns out many companies that make extra virgin olive oil dilute their product with cheaper, lower-grade oils like canola, safflower, or sunflower oils.

Brands that passed the University of California test were: Bariani, California Olive Oil, Kirkland Organic, Lucero, Lucini, McEvoy Ranch Organic, Olea Estates Ottavio. Look for the approval California Olive Oil Council (COOC Certified Extra Virgin).

If in doubt, you can test for fake olive oils yourself. Simply refrigerate the oil. It should become more solid as it gets colder. If your oil doesn’t become thick and cloudy in the refrigerator, you know it’s probably fake or lower-grade oil.

In addition, you can look for the seal denoting approval by the California Olive Oil Council, labeled as “COOC Certified Extra Virgin”

Seals of approval from the Italian Olive Grower’ Association, the Extra Virgin Alliance (EVA), and UNAPROL also signal a good pure product.

My advice: stick with high-quality brands that passed the University of California test of that have earned a seal of approval from one of the organizations I just mentioned.

I Just Want To Feel Better!

  • Have you ever walked out of a doctor’s office having received no help for your health problem and wondered why you went there in the first place?
  • Have you ever needed help with a health problem but didn’t call your doctor because you knew they couldn’t help you?
  • Many patients are hesitant to tell me what’s really wrong with their health because they’ve been told by doctors that it’s not real and they’re making it up, or that they’re suffering from a “chemical imbalance” in their brain.
  • Some patients say they feel silly telling me that they generally don’t feel well. They think that health problems without a medical diagnosis aren’t “real.” They’d be happy telling me about headaches or heartburn, but not that they wake up every morning with no ambition or energy and feeling bad.

Listen To Yourself

This hesitation in believing yourself about your own health results from a health care system that specializes in treating symptoms instead of health.

I recommend you listen to your body and believe what it tells you.

If You Feel Bad, Something is Very Wrong

If you take the right actions, you can reverse your declining health and resume a happy and fulfilling life.

If you don’t do anything effective about your health, your happiness can be reduced. Your health may continue to worsen, and you may eventually have a health problem that your doctor can diagnose. At this point, treatment will likely be long-term medication to control a symptom while your health continues to deteriorate.

The Spiral Down

Many people feel bad, can’t get help from their doctor, think that this is their lot in life and just suffer.

Some, however, put up a heroic fight to improve:

  • First, you might go to your doctor. Doctors must diagnose you to do any treatment. If you can get no useful diagnosis, this is likely to result in either no help or a prescription for antidepressant drugs.
  • If you discover that this is certainly not what you were looking for, you may research the internet for products to try. This often results in countless hours wasted while becoming more confused.
  • You may use many different supplements, herbs, and remedies. Some of these may help and create hope, only to stop working after a while.
  • Some people may search for professionals: naturopaths, chiropractors, and functional medicine doctors. In many cases, treatment will produce an improvement. But this can often be followed by a plateau with no progress and then a slow slide back into feeling bad.

The final result can be a person who feels bad and has convinced themselves that there’s nothing left to try. They may have come full circle back to thinking this is their lot in life.

You Don’t Need a Treatment; You Need a Guide and a Program

If you generally don’t feel well long-term, there is no single treatment that is likely to help. Your problem is probably more complex than a single solution from a drug, supplement, or diet.

What you need is an entire program to work with your body, diet, and lifestyle to restore your life and health. You’ll also need a guide to work with you through the program to make sure you get a full result.

This doesn’t have to be hard. It could be done in less time than you may be imagining.

Feeling So Much Better!

I’ve been coming to Alternative Health Atlanta for only 2 ½ weeks and I already am experiencing relief from problems that I’ve tried to cure with medication, exercise and willpower. None of these methods have resulted in the peaceful night’s sleep, the sense of well-being and the decrease in my anxiety levels that I am now experiencing. After each visit, I sleep a little better, feel less anxious and have more energy. I am so excited about continuing to improve mentally and physically. It’s a Godsend! —M.K.

Are You Healthy? A Conclusive Answer

It’s commonly thought that poor health means a diagnosed disease or chronic symptoms.

This short quiz reveals a different way of looking at your health.

 

Health Quiz:

  • Do you wake in the night and worry about your health?
  • Do you often think about what could go wrong or might be wrong with your health and how you might have to cope with it?
  • Do you feel as if you have a shortage of physical or mental energy to accomplish what you need to get done? Do you sometimes avoid or stop an activity because you don’t have enough energy?
  • Are you ever frustrated with your body and your health? Do you feel upset over digestive problems, joint pain, weight, lack of energy, hormone imbalances, etc.?
  • Are you concerned about your mental condition: anxiety, depression, concentration, or frustration because you can’t think of words?
  • Are you ever self-conscious or embarrassed about your body? This could be your appearance, or embarrassing problems such as burping, passing gas, or bad breath?

Healthy definition

 

New Definitions for Healthy and Unhealthy

  • Here is a new definition of health: Health is having your attention and focus on your life, with minimal attention on your body.
  • Here is a new definition of unhealthy: Poor health is when your attention is stuck on your body when that attention should be on your life.

 

You can feel fine, have great energy, have no diagnosed illness, and have normal lab tests. But if you are concerned and worried about your body, you aren’t truly healthy.

If you have more available attention for any activity, your chances of success with that activity go way up. More attention on your marriage, children, profession, hobbies, or that brand-new idea or project you just have never gotten around to (but you would if you had more attention available!).

Your Most Important Tool

Your body is the main tool that you use to live your life. Like any good tool, it should work in a way that doesn’t call attention to itself and just lets you get the job done. A hammer or shovel that hurts your hands isn’t a good tool. A body that hurts to walk is the same: a poor tool. A body that can’t be trusted not to break down in the future is also a poor tool.
